and michelle obama were sensational in their respective conventions. with me too talk first families and other presidential politics, former democratic senator and governor of indiana evan bayh and republican congressman michael grim. senator, welcome. congressman, you were almost caught in the tornado today. >> yes, i was out there meeting constituents at block parties in brooklyn. >> the tornado hit your district. the nerve. >> absolutely. right there. >> geraldo: it was weird and i'm glad it didn't amount to much. so listen, the first ladies. what role did they play and do you think they are significant? congressman, you first? >> i do think they were significant. both as you said, sensational. both delivered fantastic speeches but i think they play a very important role and i think the challenge is a little bit greater for mrs. romney. and that is her role is really to humanize and show the softer side of someone that does come across like a c.e.o. which by the way i think the country needs desperately is the c.e.o. type. >> geraldo: i newt you wer thoe going to say a stiff. >> he is a goo
whether that combined with michelle obama and president obama's speech is going to produce a bump. it's a polarized electorate. bumps aren't easy. democrats are happy with last night. >> john, very early on in clinton's speech he really tried to own the obama line about you didn't build it. i thought that was actually somewhat surprising really trying to suggest that actually maybe that line he actually meant the first time around. >> well, democrats do mean it in the sense that not in the way in which republicans have been using it against the president, but they do believe -- i mean, it's the whole theory behind hillary clinton's book "it takes the village." we all remember that. it's the idea that collective action is a big part of our individual success, which is something that when we look at, say, a country like iraq where we've been at war, the emphasis on the rebuilding process is on creating institutions and civil society and rule of law and all the things that allow individual enterprise to prosper. that's the point the democrats were making and they're trying to drive that
'm not surprised at all because i've gotten to know her. she's fantastic. i also think michelle obama did a very good job. there were a lot of very good jobs, but i think the democrats had more appropriate people to the party than the republicans did. >> steve: there was also bill clinton who gave a great if not very long speech on behalf of the current president. >> he did. >> steve: the day after the president gave his speech, donald, and by all accounts, the president flat in comparison to some of the soaring rhetoric that we've heard in the past, the day after, out pops the jobs number and it just couldn't be worse for the white house.6,000d 368,000 people left the hunt for jobs. for every job created, four people dropped out. the economic news couldn't get worse for the president. >> right. it was a bad report. it was a very bad report, was not covered as badly and as -- the way it should have been, but frankly, i'm listening to made in america or made in the usa, regardless of what he's saying, why isn't he doing something about china? he never attacks china. he's not stopping the problem
